Biscuit's Story...
Biscuit was rescued by B.A.R.C. after Animal Control responded to a call from a neighbor informing them that he was tied to a tree, malnourished and abandoned by his owners. The neighbor reported that Biscuit lived his life outside, tied up along with his smaller companion, a Dachshund mix. He was sent to a kennel, because the local shelter was quarantined, and shortly thereafter rescued by B.A.R.C. volunteers.

Though little is known about Biscuit’s past, it is believed that he is about 2-3 years old. He is a beautiful caramel-colored fawn male who, surprisingly, came into the program heartworm negative and with no intestinal parasites. He has been neutered and fully vetted. Biscuit is housebroken and crate-trained, though he needs a little coaxing with a treat to get him in his crate. His foster parents are working on obedience and leash training, but he does well using a Gentle Leader.

Despite his past, Biscuit has an amazingly happy spirit. As soon as he was introduced to his foster parents’ backyard, it was almost as if he felt a sense of relief, joy and freedom to be the goofy, playful, spirited dog that he is. Biscuit has lots of energy and would definitely benefit from a family who’s committed to walking, playing, and exercising him and he’s a great dog to run with! After his walk, Biscuit really likes to take a stroll on his handy dandy treadmill too. Yes, a treadmill!

He plays well with his foster brother and sister (two Boxers) and would enjoy living with another playful doggie (big or small) that he can play tug-of-war with. In addition, Biscuit loves being around his human companions and will follow you around the house. He’s a loving dog who will sometimes try to sneak on the couch (one body part at a time that is) to be closer to you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Biscuit, a Jacksonville Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Jacksonville, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in Jacksonville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jacksonville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Jacksonville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jacksonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
